Alex Hull, President of Inwood, understands the importance of supporting the cause through his personal connection to the organization. Alex’s sister, Joyce Hildreth, is the Associate Director of LCF and lives with inherited and progressive vision loss known as Retinitis Pigmentosa. Joyce has been dedicated to LCF for 10 years and due to her strength and commitment to supporting the cause, Alex has been inspired to do the same. Over the years, Alex has worked to raise Inwood’s awareness of the importance of the services provided by the organization and encourage annual participation in the Sight and Sole Walk.
“I am proud to support my sister, LCF and the amazing work the organization does for people living with visual impairments,” stated Alex Hull. “Inwood will continue to help organizations, like LCF, raise awareness and bring hope to the community.”
For over 30 years, LCF has been the only organization in Central Florida that provides comprehensive vision rehabilitation services to children and adults with vision impairment. According to the organization, it is estimated that as many as 80,000 Central Floridians are living with blindness or significant vision loss. LCF uses the funds raised at events like the Sight and Sole Walk for high quality programs, expert technology and caring advocacy.
“My daughters and I enjoyed walking and making a difference in the community. The walk not only raised money but also raised our awareness of LCF and the need for their services in the community,” explained Emma Doing, an employee at Inwood. She further stated, “I think that it is important to support the community through organizations like LCF because you never know when you or a loved one may need help and support from such organizations.”
